VIZ Adds Evangelion Manga for Weekly Digital Releases

VIZ Media, the licensor and North American publisher of Sadamoto’s Neon Genesis Evangelion Manga, will be releasing stages (chapters) of the manga in digital format on their website and manga app for iOS (iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone) for $0.99 a stage, one stage a week. The first stage, “Angel Attack”, is free as a preview and the 2nd stage, “Reunion”, is the release for this week.

VIZ has been doing digital releases on many of their manga properties since they’ve released their manga reading app for iOS last November, this is the first digital release for the Evangelion manga by VIZ. Though most of their digital releases occur monthly and by volume, Evangelion’s is weekly by stages.
